This year will be full of new and exciting changes for me! I will be switching elementary schools after 15 years. It is a bittersweet time as I am both sad and happy all at the same time. Leggett Elementary and it's students will always have a special place in my heart. I am looking forward to a new adventure with my students at Windemere and their families.  We will go an awesome art adventure as I take this show on the road. I plan to introduce the students at Windemere to art and culture from around the world. Pack your bags and get ready for some fun!!!

Made in the USA

I have not done a very good job of blogging this school year, but I am going to make a sincere effort to do a better job in 2012. I was inspired by Laura at Painted Paper to do a theme for the rest of the year based on American art & artists, as well as sights and landmarks in the good ol' USA. I started right in when we started back last week with the book The Art of Freedom for the upper grades, and I Am America for the younger grades. Everyone seems very excited to learn about art from our own country, especially since we have been doing art around the world the last few years.  I will post pictures soon!!
